GPS used offroad

What do you use offroad to keep track of where you are going, where you've been? I've used GAIA for the trail riding I've done and its worked pretty good.  Is it perfect?

Fuel Lift Pump

The question that seems to popup a lot is whether or not to get a lift pump.  What happens if the lift pump fails, am I stuck?  Can I get filters anywhere or is it online order only? Why spend the money? How long will the pump last before it needs to be replaced?  Do I need a sump installed on my tank if I get a lift pump?

No matter if you are into Nascar or Offroad racing or whatever we all need to communicate.  CB Radios are a thing of the past.  From reading articles, forums and other online research they all lead to either BaoFeng Radios or the more expensive Rugged Radios.  Pros and Cons to both.  They can both be programmed with the freeware software called Chirp (its available on Mac, Windows, Linux).
